2017-10-20 TOP PICK Bruce Campbell (1)

This is most like a TD Bank (TD-T) in that it is an east coast regional from Florida up through New England. Very cheap relative to its US peers. It would look a little expensive on Canadian standards, trading at 13X earnings instead of 11X earnings, and a 2.8% yield instead of 4%, but would be a bigger beneficiary on higher rates. Very retail. If we get the Fed going again in December, and 1 or 2 times next year, they’ll have decent earnings growth, and there are still lots of targets of smaller regional banks for them to buy. (Analysts’ price target is $49.)

2017-08-11 COMMENT Darren Sissons

Under the Obama government, the banks preferred were the regionals because of the regulatory glare, which was much more negative, on the money centred banks.

2017-05-05 BUY Darren Sissons

We are seeing less regulatory glare under the Trump administration. This means we could see a lot more upside in US banks, so a little bit of money has been taken from here in the last little while. Excellent balance sheet. The payout ratio is about 50% of what it was before the global financial crisis. Thinks there is a lot of upside here.

2016-11-14 WATCH Keith Richards

The entire US banking sector is looking pretty good or breaking out.  BBT-N is attempting to break the long term wall.  If it gets above $43 for a number of days you probably have a good chance of seeing pretty good upside.  So far it is developing positively.  Keep a mental stop loss at about $42.  If it stays below that for a couple of days then sell it.

2016-11-11 PAST TOP PICK Darren Sissons

(A Top Pick May 4/15. Up 12.92%.) Very active in the Florida/Northeast corridor. There is more upside. They don’t have a lot of investment banking business so the regulatory is clear and regulators are not going to be there.

2016-11-08 PAST TOP PICK Norman Levine

(A Top Pick Oct 1/15. Up 13.93%.) This is a super regional bank out of North Carolina. Most of its operations are on the US East Coast, but have bought some banks inland as well. A superbly managed bank, mostly retail. A big beneficiary of a rising yield curve, so when rates do go up in the US, it will be a big beneficiary. Dividend yield of 3.1%.

2016-09-28 COMMENT Hap (Robert) Sneddon FCSI

Had a high of around $42 in 2014, and got to as low as $30 early this year. It is now bounced back up to around $38. Looks like it is now starting to roll over. If it breaks below $36, it is probably going to go a little bit lower to the $32-$34 range. He would look to buy this on weakness, or a break out above $42.

2016-06-17 BUY Norman Levine

A regional bank, mostly on the east coast of the US. They weren’t allowed to pay a dividend during the financial crisis, but as soon as they were allowed to, they did and have been increasing the dividend on a regular basis.

2016-02-03 PAST TOP PICK Norman Levine

(A Top Pick Jan 12/15. Down 10.51%.) A regional bank, mostly on the east coast of the US. Very well-run. Bought this to participate in the recovery of the US economy as well as the higher interest rates that banks earn on their spreads. In the mean time it is not working because the yield curve is flattening in the US. He still likes the outlook for the growing US economy.

(A Top Pick Dec 4/14. Up 3.43%.) An east coast consumer bank in North Carolina, one of the biggest in the US. It benefits from improving real estate markets and improving loan growth. A beneficiary of the rising interest rates that are coming in the US.

This is a US regional bank, and regional banks are one of the better places to look. Expecting this to get into the $40 range, and will be selling it when it does that. US banks tend to move in the 1st part of the year.

2015-11-20 COMMENT Kash Pashootan

He likes the regional bank space. This was a company that purchased 2 of the regional banks that he had been holding. Regional banks are a good way to play the US consumer. This is a great name. Its balance sheet is strong and it is well capitalized. They have been spending money like crazy to do acquisitions, and there will be a period where they need to digest these acquisitions. Feels the dividend is safe. Upside will be limited because it takes time to become accretive to earnings.
